Tomorrow is our last day of school
before the holiday break.

{can you see my happy dance}

I am SO looking forward to the time off.

Class treats, white elephant gifts, and the teachers gifts are ready to go.

Yes, I am ready ahead of time.
No last minute putting together of the treat bags for me.

Actually, I have know what we were making for the teachers a while ago.

With Charlie now in middle school, we have A LOT of teachers to gift this year,
so I knew it would have to be homemade.

Thanks to Pinterest, I found the cutest hot chocolate on a stick gifts from the tom kat studio.

That’s what we made, and they turned out SO cute
if I do say so myself.
